  • New sequencing reveals genetic history of tomatoes

    An international team of researchers, led by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing, published in the journal Nature Genetics a brief genomic history of tomato breeding, based on sequencing of 360 varieties of the tomato plant. The C.M. Rick Tomato Genetics Resource Center at UC Dav more

  • Fly genome could help us improve health and our environment

    The house fly might be a worldwide pest, but its genome will provide information that could improve our lives. From insights into pathogen immunity, to pest control and decomposing waste, the 691 Mb genome has been sequenced and analyzed by a global consortium of scientists, and is published in the more

  • No excess baggage: Antarctic insect's genome, newly sequenced, is smallest to date

    Scientists who sequenced the genome of the Antarctic midge suspect the genome's small size – the smallest in insects described to date – can probably be explained by the midge's adaptation to its extreme living environment. The midge is a small, wingless fly that spends most of its two-year larval s more

  • Genome Sequencer 20 System: Breakthrough in a New Applications Age of Sequencing

    The Genome Sequencer 20 System is an ultra-high-throughput automated DNA sequencing system capable of carrying out and monitoring sequencing reactions in a massively parallel fashion. Since the Genome Sequencer 20 System provides a complete solution for ultra-high-throughput DNA sequencing, an individual researcher can for the first time prepare samples and sequencing reactions, generate sequence reads, and assemble genome sequence data within days. more

  • The New Genome Sequencer FLX System

    In 2005, the Genome Sequencer 20 System was introduced into the global life science market. Based on the revolutionary 454 sequencing technology, this system is able to generate hundreds of thousands of sequence reads in a few hours at a fraction of costs compared with the traditional Sanger technology. more

  • Real-Time PCR Quantification of Plant miRNAs Using Universal ProbeLibrary Technology

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are naturally occurring, highly conserved families of transcripts (18-25 nt in length) that are processed from larger hairpin precursors. Both plant and animal genomes encode miRNAs, and to date, there are over 4000 mature miRNA transcripts annotated. Although miRNAs represent a relatively abundant class of transcripts, their expression levels vary greatly among species and tissues. Less abundant miRNAs routinely fail detection using technologies such as cloning, northern hybridization and microarray analysis. Here, we present a real-time quantification method for accurate, sensitive, and economical detection of plant miRNAs based upon the stem-loop RT primer approach using an miRNA-specific primer coupled with a stem-loop specific Universal ProbeLibrary (UPL) probe. This approach represents a highly specific, sensitive, and easy-to-apply system to detect miRNAs. more
